I am using a digi98-8 with a fostex ADAT-analog converter. Works well with 
pd and ALSA 0.9.
It needs the 0.9 ALSA version. There is supposed to be an OSS commercial 
driver, but I never got it to work.
The card knows only two "fragment" settings. This is a hardware thing I 
think, so the latency is best for 8 channels.

It can be a bit sensitive about IRQ settings, I had to shuffle my PCI cards 
before getting it to work all the time. Also when switching to ADAT mode, 
which is a seperate device for ALSA, I have to start pd, quit, and start pd 
again, to enable full-duplex. 8 channel output always works the first time. 
It gives an input error on the first try at the new device.
I have never used the AEB8 board, but it should work without problems.
I can mail you my modules.conf for ALSA and my pd flags if you need them.
